Craniosacral Therapy- 

What is Craniosacral Therapy?

 

Craniosacral Therapy is a form of therapy used by a professionally licensed healing touch or medical practitioner. It is a form of therapy that benefits the Cranioscacral System. The techniques of Craniosacral Therapy and the idea of the system were developed by Dr. John Upledger. The findings of Dr. Upledger and his colleges from the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Michigan State University through studies concluded that there is movement in frequency and amplitude between cranial bones. The discovery of rhythmic movement in the spinal cord of a patient in surgery led to Dr. Upleder’s theory of the Craniosacral System. This system includes the Brain and Spinal cord Dural Tube, its membranes, and its osseous connections, or connection to bone. The “Pressurestat Model” was the idea that the tissues of the Craniosacral System and their control centers in the brain influence the rhythmic flow of the Cerebrospinal Fluid that nourishes and protects the tissues of the Brain and Spinal cord. The rhythm and flow follow its own unique timing much like the rates of cardiac pulse, breathing, muscular contraction, and nerve conduction. The therapy was based on Craniopathy developed by William G. Sutherland, DO. Dr. Sutherland used techniques to manually correct abnormal cranial bone motion. Dr. Upledger adopted Dr. Sutherland’s techniques and added his own techniques to develop Craniosacral Therapy following the rhythmic movement of the system and manually correcting imbalances with light touch and Craniosacral rhythm monitoring. Craniosacral therapy is appropriate for all ages and all walks of life.
